Before I was a Mom I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.
Before I was a Mom - I had never been puked on.
Pooped on.
Chewed on.
Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.
I slept all night.
Before I was a Mom I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do tests.
Or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.
Before I was a Mom I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put it down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mom.
Before I was a Mom - I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.
I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.
I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy.
Before I was a Mom - I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth, The joy, The love, The heartache, The wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much before I was a Mom.

And before I was a Grandma, I didn't know that all those "Mom" feelings more than doubled when you see that little bundle being held by "your baby"...

Send this to someone who you think is a special Mom or Grandma. I just did.
And remember that behind every successful mother... Is a basket of dirty laundry.



Don't Quit
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
and you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest, if you must . . . but don't you quit. Success is failure turned inside out, The silver tint of the clouds of doubt. And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems afar.

So, stick to the fight when you're hardest hit . . . It's when things go wrong that you mustn't quit....




Today, when I awoke, I suddenly realized that this is the best day of my life, ever

There were times when I wondered if I would make it to today; but I did!
And because I did I'm going to celebrate!
Today, I'm going to celebrate what an unbelievable life I have had so far: the accomplishments, the many blessings, and, yes, even the hardships because they have served to make me stronger.

I will go through this day with my head held high and a happy heart.
I will marvel at God's seemingly simple gifts:

The morning dew, The sun,The clouds,the trees, the flowers and the birds.

Today, none of these miraculous creations will escape my notice.
Today, I will share my excitement for life with other people.
I'll make someone smile.
I'll go out of my way to perform an unexpected act of kindness for someone I don't even know. Today, I'll give a sincere compliment to someone who seems down. I'll tell a child how special he is, and I'll tell someone I love just how deeply I care for them and how much they mean to me.

Today is the day I quit worrying about what I don't have and start being grateful for all the wonderful things God has already given me. I'll remember that to worry is just a waste of time because my faith in God and his Divine Plan ensures everything will be just fine.

And tonight, before I go to bed, I'll go outside and raise my eyes to the heavens. I will stand in awe at the beauty of the stars and the moon, and I will praise God for these magnificent treasures.

As the day ends and I lay my head down on my pillow,
I will thank the Almighty for the best day of my life.
And I will sleep the sleep of a contented child,
excited with expectation because!
I know tomorrow is going to be the best day of my life, ever!


Do you know of others who might be waiting to receive it from you?



Batchy and friends.....

The future Miss quebec.A pix taken last summmer...



In our life, we experience good and painful ones.
And its really difficult to understand the painful days,
but we learn how to be more strong from these troubled days.
Even though we are hurt and feel frustrated ,
we learn to hold on and face each new day.

Put in mind that the simlplest pleasures
are often the most rewarding
and losing is only another step towards winning.
When the smiling side of life turns to us again,
we find our selves stronger with a greater
knowledge of our selves,and able to feel happiness,
feel the welcome comfort of good life more deeply than before......

Wishing you all a good weekend !


LET GO.....

Let go of the past,the future is here- right now.Life begins today and looks forward to tomorrow,growing ,renewing,beginning again.It is not what happened or what you are,but rather what you will become that matters.Always look ahead...leave your pain behind you and make peace within your self.

Starting today.....let go of fear,its a waste of faith.
Let go of the past, coz starting today you can make your
life what you want it to be.Yesterday is gone,today is here
and a bright tomorrow will come.....

I ( WE ) MISS YOU....

It was long ago that you touched me...
But your finger prints still remain,I can still feel it
The way you gently caressed the small of my back
Your lips so supple and tender.
Your hot breath on the lobe of my ear,tell me again..
The way you look through my eyes,into my soul
My heart still bears the scar of your presence......

Since you've been gone
I've asked my self if i did the right thing
or if there was something else i could have done.
I know there is'nt ,I asked anyway.
I try to remind my self ,that its better this way
That we'll both be better for it.I know that we are...
But sometimes.......sometimes.....I(we) miss you...
(me and the kids)

Dont throw away a suggestion when you see a problem.Instead,isolate the negative from the possibility.Exploit the possibility,and sublimate the negative.

Nothing is impossible if we will hold on to the idea that we might become possible somehow ,someway, with someones help...
